A cancer survivor from Nailsea has raised £1,000 for a charity which supported her after her diagnosis.
Sam Hughes-Smith was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 19.
Sami, who works as a bar manager at The Glassmaker, is now five years in remission and to celebrate she held a quiz, a cake sale and a raffle in aid of CLIC Sargent.
Sami also had her locks shaved off to raise money for the cause.
She said: “I’m raising money for CLIC Sargent as Wetherspoon’s as a company supports the charity.
